Description of the initiative
Nano Technology for Science Education (NTSE) is a Transversal KA3 ICT project that aims to use ICT as a tool to make the learning of science subjects more attractive and accessible. The project target groups are students from the general and vocational schools aged 13 to 18; teachers in science subject; and college & university students attending science education courses. Mainly, the project will establish a Virtual Lab, as an experimental virtual aid to science learning. The project seeks to address the problems by integrating well established but currently independent technological developments, within creative and motivating teaching materials and virtual learning spaces.
More Information
The project offers access to a virtual lab: with experiments room, repository, glossary, competition room, etc. The NTSE project offers also Nano Kit, which includes hands on products and materials to realize nine different experiments on nanotechnology in the Virtual Laboratory – the guidelines to use can be seen here: There are also guidelines how to use the virtual lab in different languages: in EN – and in BG- also available in Italian and Romanian. The website of the project also offers case studies from teachers, related to teaching and studying nanotechnologies.
Teachers’ Opinion
Nanotechnologies are an important subject to teach, but not a great deal of time can be dedicated to this topic in school. It is good there are such initiatives, which let teacher organize their classes in a better way and offer students interesting materials to read and most importantly space to make experiments, since labs are not always available.
Students’ Opinion
The virtual lab offers a lot of experiments. It is very interesting to watch the experiments. It is very good that the lab offers not only to see the experiments, but also participate in them and further read of the procedures and have guidelines how to do the experiment yourself.

The initiative is quite well done. The site and laboratory are well structured and arranged, easily found the information I needed and it was interesting while I was using it. Is quite well thought out the fact that not everyone understands one language and the site added several languages.Everything is explained clearly what it is and how it works. To me this initiative is the one I most liked! I hope the information to be updated with the progress of technology so that we make progress and develop along with it.

Nowadays for teachers it is necessary to adapt to new technology. For students it is already a fact. This initiative gives a new view of teaching. As mentioned in one of the presentations here the main source of information is not only a teacher, he only directs and summarizes. It is necessary to develop the topics on the syllabus, so that teachers and students successfully use the site in their work.

This is a great initiative that illustrates the complex processes and eases their understanding. Allows active participation, not only to monitor the process. Unfortunately there is not included educational content, but this is clearly not the objective of the project. An indispensable source of information for the curious pupils for whom almost never there is time in school hours. I personally liked the initiative and I recommend it to my students with a keen interest in nanotechnology.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
